(A different shade of shadow pictured here)
A newcomer to the wonder of cream eyeshadows, I have fallen head over heels for Clinique's Quick Eyes Cream Shadow. When first purchased I didn't see the fuss about it, and bought after hearing Zoe Foster rave about it. There was also a GWP going on which I wanted, so didn't have much to lose. The shade Zoe loves is Muffin, a warm chocolatey shade.

 There are 9 colours in the range that are quite similar in my opinion, I would love to see Clinique bring out some brights or more vivid colours in this range, then it would be on like Donkey Kong!

Though the doe-foot applicator is comfortable on the eye, I find it distributes too much cream shadow for one eye, so I swipe some onto my finger before blending onto my eye. It has great staying power, and I find it even better when layered over a MAC paintpot (Chilled On Ice is my pick)

The best thing about this product is that it looks as though you've spent ages creating a gorgeous smoky bronzed eye, when in fact you've done little to no work at all.


Muffin, unblended.

Clinique's Quick Eyes Cream Shadows retail for $37 AUD for 5mls, which is pretty steep in my opinion as I can see myself using this whole tube up quickly. Can be purchased from Myer and DJ's etc.I will be repurchasing in the future, love this product.

  1. Looks lovely on you, pretty girl. What have you got on your cheeks? (:

  2. Nice muffin!! How does the cream formula wear/last ? I hate when cream formulas do that Creasy thing. Did you find that with this? As love the idea .....

  3. On my cheeks lie MAC Springsheen and a light dusting of Nars Laguna bronzer=)

    And I find the cream formula wears well, pretty creaseless and is unbeatable over a paintpot. I'm the same with cream shadows, hate the creasing, but these are lovely and don't=)

  4. I like this idea, might have to give it a go. Seems simple, and I like simple :p

  5. I have MAC Springsheen on my cheeks with a touch of Nars Laguna bronzer. The formula wears well, lasts well and even better over a paintpot. Such a quick and simple option, wish they had more colours.
